Lemon Kush may be a couple of different strains with distinct genetics. Though, you're sure to get a musky sweet lemon aroma from each of them. Mostly indica-dominant, this balanced hybrid is the perfect way to relax.

Lemon Kush Experience


A few different strains go by the name Lemon Kush, including the popular Lemon Kush Headband. The most famous is a mix of Master Kush and Lemon Joy. However, another hybrid may include mixes of Afghan Kush and Lemon G. Both of these versions are Indica-dominant, but they provide ample Sativa effects. Expect a fairly balanced mix of a heavy-bodied physical high with a calm, elevated mood.

There is at least one variety of this strain that has Sativa-dominance, but the exact lineage is a mystery. You're more likely to run into the Indica hybrids listed above. Though the common Lemon Kush strains may be Indica-dominant, don't expect significant couch-lock from this strain. This variety creates a relaxed, easygoing vibe that's perfect for a slow afternoon.

 

Traits of Lemon Kush and Lemon Kush Seeds


From the first sniff, this strain leaves a lasting impression on marijuana consumers. A heady combo of the signature kush aroma and notes of smooth lemon, the combination of which is almost soothing to some marijuana connoisseurs. The distinctive aroma is mirrored in this strain’s flavor — citrus and lemon meld with earthy, spicy flavors that lacks some of the ammonia or diesel flavors of other lemon-centric marijuana strains.

While this strain has smaller than average buds,  cannabis consumers should worry — the thick coating of trichomes pack enough of a punch to make up for any size deficiencies. That thick frosting makes for some tough weed to break up, cannabis fans will want to keep their grinder close to hand.

 

Medical Benefits of Lemon Kush


Heady, lemon aroma and flavors aside, medical marijuana patients cherish this strain for the relief it offers from a number of ailments and conditions.

  • Medical consumers often find that this strain eases headaches and knocks stress out of the park

  • Those with depression and anxiety tend to like this mellow hybrid, though you may experience a little paranoia if you consume too much

  • Both of the most common Lemon Kush varieties have a fairly high THC content. The Master Kush variety has even reached levels over 20%. Though well-balanced, this strain can be quite potent — novice marijuana consumers should be aware when consuming in large amounts

Growing Tips

How Lemon Kush grows depends on what version of this strain you have. Though, both indica-dominant mixes thrive in warm, dry Mediterranean climates. It may be difficult to reach fabled 1kg/plant yield from these plants if you do not live in a hot, sunny environment. Indoors, the harvest will be about average, with a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks. To really get that lemon aroma, you'll want to plop this plant into organic soil. New marijuana growers will find Lemon Kush a nice introduction to cultivation.
